Old Buffet stuff is actually some real fun and good stuff. Death of an Unpopular Poet, Elise Dee (the LSD pun), The Great Filling Station Hold Up (a great song, very funny), Life is Just a Tire Swing, Trying to Reason w/ Hurricane Season, The Wino and I know. Most his stuff on his first 5 albums is great stuff. Back in the day the Coral Reefer band had some real great musicians and made some good music.

All this new crap of his does suck though. Old Jimmy wasn't half bad.

I totally agree on the old stuff...I liked him more when he was just trying to be a musician and not a multimedia entertainer...at some point the line was crossed and I just can't handle all of the parrot shyte...but there are more than a few believers...

funny, I just saw a site that had him as Jummy Buffet with every reference...

I remember seeing him at Easter Kentucky University and a tv station was interviewing fans going in. This really hot co-ed (very drunk as well) was asked, what's your favorite Jimmy Buffet song, she screamed Margariataville. They then asked her, what's your second favorite JB song. She thought about it for a second or two and screamed, Margariativille!!! It was just a sad editorial that half of his fans don't know shit about the music if it's not on a greatest hits album.

He sold out awhile ago, and all this "Parrotheads" driving me crazy.

that song story sums it very well...I just know when it happened that his place in my fun-drinking music category was easily replaced by the likes of jerry jeff, gary p. nunn, ray wiley hubbard, rusty wier, billy joe shaver, robert earl keene jr and the list goes on...

just because it is fun-drinking music doesn't mean that it has to be bad...

I worked at Margaritaville in Key West for years. Jimmys hard-core fans are fucking Morons (note the capital "M").
"Play Cheeseburger in Paradise, play Cheeseburger in Paradise!!" Over and over.........
The menu offered some of the freshest fish you're ever gonna get, and all these people wanted was their cheap-ass cheeseburgers. And to watch these people taking fucking pictures of their cheeseburgers just made me sick.
Maybe thats what closed my mind.

btw- what up Nick? hope you're well

While I am a fan of Buffett I did go to one of his restaurants in New Orleans and was appalled. I ordered a turkey club. Now you are asking yourselves, "how can you fuc* up a turkey club?" Well, the turkey wasn't white meat. It was that meat that is stuck to the rhine of the turkey. It's that rubbery texture. Let's say at 5 PM after a day of boozin it wasn't what I was looking for. The guy's worth millions he can pony out some turkey breast.

I hear ya lobster. The kitchen in KW was a joke. Literally 3 sautee pans, only one with a decent handle.
Reused and recycled fries for the "couch potatos" dish. Any french fry that should have been thrown out was used in this dish. And speaking of been thrown out and to tie in with your club story~~ We would bake sheet pans of whole chickens, tear off just the white meat for the clubs and THROW THE REST AWAY. No making stock, no chicken soup,no chicken salad, nothing. I couln't tell you how many thousands of pounds of perfectly good, cooked, juicy thighs and legs I saw dumped in the garbage (or fed to the dozens of homeless cats out back...they loved me) Disgusting.
When hurricane George hit in 98 the power went out of 17 days. ALL of the restaurants cooked their food off and gave it away to all the townees eventually. Not M-Ville.
They left the walk-ins and freezers go for weeks and then tried to pay people minimum wage to clean them out. I always wondered how Jimmy Buffet could have his name attached to something like that. What a joke.
I know this is supposed to be about his music. But every facet of J Buffet just leaves me limp. Just one mans opinion~~~~~~

Damn...I hate reading any story that reveals anything about the kitchens of eating establishments...always makes me queasy...

Did enjoy yours, but kept worrying you were about to tell me something that would prevent me from eating out for the next month.

As if the too-mat-O issue isn't enough already.
